Coconut Curry Hummus

Have we mentioned that we adore hummus?! On toast, in our buddha bowls, by the spoonful….hey, don’t judge! Hummus is such a common staple of ours, that we are always looking for new flavor combos to change it up. This creamy and delightful recipe was inspired by this Thai Coconut Curry hummus. We added coconut milk which brings a richness to the hummus and really makes the spices stand out. Quick tip: pour leftover coconut milk into a ziploc bag and freeze, this makes it easy to add to dishes later on. This recipe is so easy, requires very little prep, and is simple to make with a food processor or blender. Our Ninja food processor works great for hummus because it’s so convenient for small batches and storage.

A delicious twist on hummus!

Ingredients

(1 can) of chickpeas

(1/4 cup) coconut milk (we used full fat)

(2) cloves of garlic

(1 T.) tahini

(3 T.) lime juice

(1 T.) yellow curry powder (adjust per spice preference)

(1/4 t.) crushed red pepper

(1 T.) coconut oil

(2 T.) cilantro

Salt and pepper to taste (we used about 1/2 t. of salt)

Directions

Rinse and drain chickpeas if using canned. Add chickpeas, coconut milk, garlic, tahini, lime juice, cilantro, and melted coconut oil to food processor. Pulse a few times, then add the remaining ingredients adjusting spices as you go.

This hummus is especially tasty as a dip. It’s fun to use veggies you would normally add to a curry to scoop up the spicy deliciousness, like cauliflower and broccoli!

    Thanks for coming by my place, although what you saw there was hardly healthy food! I actually had hummus for the first time ever the other day. The jury is still out on it LOL.

    We are going to Israel next week, so I bet we get many chances to try again. I will try to remember to let you know!

      1. I have never cooked with coconut milk before. I feel like the seasoning needs a special touch. But this looks doable 😋
